Marlins Spring Training Report: Full Update of Surprises, Busts and Injuries
Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports
The Miami Marlins welcome you to spring training ... a place full of surprises, busts and injuries in preparation for the 2014 season.

It's often said the best things come in small sizes. What's often not said is the worst things also come in small sizes.

And when it comes to spring training, all things come in small sample sizes.

With that said, the Miami Marlins are far enough along (18 of 32 games played) into spring training that certain revelations start becoming truths by this time of the year. In fact, as more cuts are made, it's evident what players have made a positive impression and whom the coaching staff likes for the start of the 2014 season, which was the case when the Marlins sent 12 players back to the minor leagues last week.

With two weeks left before Opening Day, the coaching staff must decide who the surprises are and if they are going to stick, who the busts are and ponder if it's just a bad tune-up for the season or if it's the real deal, and if any injuries have ruined any plans that were made in the offseason.

So, without further ado, here are the Marlins' surprises, busts and key injuries thus far in spring training.
